This motel is under new ownership and they have done a great job of renovating it. The new owner and his mother are very friendly and knowledgeable about attractions in the area. Every evening most of the guests can be found visiting in the chairs located outside the rooms. The rooms were very clean and neat. All in all a... More

Thank you for taking time out of your day to write us a review. I see you mentioned how people enjoy sitting outside and visiting with one another. That is one of the special things about these older motels and the way they were constructed, it gives people the opportunity to get to know each other by having a place... More

Thank you so much Barbara for your kind words. We've had a wonderful summer and we've had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of many new people who finally stopped at the Arrowhead for the first time. One thing I hear about on a daily basis is the new Adirondack chairs we've put in front of the rooms. They've added... More

We stayed here as part of a 3 week road trip through the States and had decided on this place as a one night stop over after seeing the reviews online. We like to mix staying at more modern, luxurious places with more traditional and retro places (as long as they are still clean and comfy!). We were really pleased... More

Appreciated experiencing the regional hospitality & culture of owners from less than a day's drive from here (instead of cultures from another continent as is the case with many other hotels in the area now). We drove into town & checked out about 8 other hotels. We came back here for the hospitality, the obvious care put into the grounds... More

This is a great place to stay in Ruidoso. It was very clean and spacious. The owner was personable and friendly. He made us and our kids feel right at home. Arrowhead will be our first choice when staying in Ruidoso.

This is almost like a Route 66 Motel. Very comfortable and extremely clean. The owner went out of his way to accommodate my back injury. I met his mother and she had a great sense of humor! Will be back as soon as I can. Anyone wanting a different experience should stay here.
